What is skin cancer? Every year more than one million Americans find out they have skin cancer, but the good news is that the majority of those cases are curable. Skin cancer is a generic term used to describe a number of different cancers. There are two types of skin cancer: melanoma and non-melanoma.

In this video, Dr. Bobby Buka explains the difference between the two and shares some tips on how to keep your biggest organ safe from danger.
